About the Award

For graduating doctoral and master's students

This Award is given by the Division of Campus Life and Student Services on behalf of the Corporation Committee on Campus Life and recognizes a select group of graduating doctoral and master’s students who have contributed in a very significant way to the sense of community at Brown.

Award winners generally demonstrate both a breadth of engagement and sufficient depth to have had a substantial impact. Through their participation in the life of their peers and the broader Brown community, they have enhanced campus life and the experience of others. Through their service, teaching, research, advising, mentoring, and/or interpersonal interactions, recipients demonstrate their deep commitment to bettering the lives of others and reflect the highest ideals of citizenship and a life of engaged scholarship and practice.

This Award is one of several awards given by the University to graduate students in recognition of their excellence and contributions.

Nomination Process for May 2018 Awards

All members of the Brown community are invited to submit nominations for individuals expected to graduate in May 2018. The on-line form will be available mid-spring semester with nominations due by mid-April.

As the process is highly selective, successful nominations should provide a full picture of the nominee, including known ENGAGEMENTS (both formal and informal, and within program/department, across campus, and beyond Brown) and their IMPACT on their peers, Brown, and the lives of others, including sustainability of their efforts; their commitment to advising, mentoring, teaching, and/or supporting others; and/or the breadth or depth of their impact. Nominators are encouraged to submit a copy of a nominee’s CV along with their nomination to joslin-awards@brown.edu.

Note: If you are nominating a Master's student, you might also consider a nomination for the Masters's Award for Engaged Citizenship and Community Service.
